Action Figure Family Donation Request
These are photos of the creation of the Action Family Figures, which is taking place right in lovely Palm Springs. I think that you'll agree that, like every great art project at Burning Man, this one will bring about world peace and a transcendent consciousness linking all souls. If not that, it will at least generate surprise. The playa has never seen anything quite like this. It's going to be four mannequins covered with the action figures, Lego people, Muppets and even Happy Meal toys that young Jallen has been acquiring throughout his 50-odd years, 20 of which he has spent as a Burner. Do you see the Viewmaster serving as the eyes for the little boy? Look into the little boy's eyes and you'll see some of Jallen's photos from the last 20 years of Burning Man. Of course, you'll have to come to Burning Man or one of our work parties to do that.
Besides its stunning artistic qualities, this project is what's getting me to Burning Man this year. Now I'm working for the price of my admission. Working on this project will get me a ticket, a vehicle pass and an early arrival pass! If they would throw in a free shower on the playa, it would be an even better deal, but that's not to be this year.
Who are the patrons supporting this Sistine-Chapel-of-the-desert? Uh, well, me...and others, and you should too. I've actually contributed more than the value of the ticket & VP, so now it's your time to join the fun.
Go here to make a donation, and don't shy away from a 4-digit donation. Check out the rewards you get for one of those!
You get real value for those, not just a t-shirt or other souvenir. And Jallen's going to tell me who made contributions.
